We′re a little different here!

You may have noticed that the Y is changing the way we present ourselves. For the first time in 43 years, we’ve unveiled a new brand strategy.

This change comes at a critical time, because it’s designed to increase understanding of the impact we’re making right here in Greater Burlington. Our nation and community face unprecedented challenges, and the Y wants to open its doors to more people who can benefit from what we have to offer.

At the Y, we’ve always known that positive change only comes about when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. And that’s why we’re here. We have three areas of focus:

  • Youth Development, because young people need caring adults to provide support, guidance and encouragement as they grow.
  • Healthy Living, because wellness in spirit, mind and body strengthens our very being, and enhances our interactions with others.
  • Social Responsibility, because we truly are in this together, and together we can harness our individual strengths and bring about positive change around us.

So while we’ve changed our appearance to better reflect the work we do and the positive impact we make, we’re still supporting this community in the same way we always have. We look forward to enriching more lives and more families, and to further strengthening this community for decades to come.

As always, I—and we—welcome your input. I invite you to share your thoughts with me by posting a response to this note; by emailing me directly; or by interacting on our Facebook page.

I look forward to hearing from you!
